Meet Our Staff
Let me say, welcome and thank you for taking time to visit the Higgins Methodist website. My name is Fred Zickefoose, the Pastor of Higgins, and I’d like to tell you a little about me.
I was born and raised outside of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, where I married my high school sweetheart, Joyce, in 1992. We have two grown sons, Josh and John, and five grandkids: Ezra, Tenley, Zander, Zoey, and Talia.
I often volunteered to speak for Sunday services at our local nursing home and Joyce and I were the Youth Group leaders in our home church, but never did I have designs of entering the ministry process and becoming a pastor. Someone saw something in me that I did not and pointed it out to me; from that moment on the Holy Spirit had a hold of me, leading me in the direction of pastoral ministry.
Since 2012 I have served three different multi-point charges in Western Pa. learning from each of them. In 2023 the Holy Spirit started leading me in a different direction and that direction was south, to Higgins Methodist Church. I am excited to be here, bringing what I’ve learned and prepared to learn even more as I serve side by side with an amazing, loving, faithful, family of God.
If you would like a more contemporary service on Sunday morning, we have the Celebration Service at 8:30. If you would like a more traditional service, we have the Sanctuary Service at 11. When you stop in, come up and say hi, I’ll be at both.
In the meantime, again, thanks for checking out the Higgins Methodist website. I look forward to meeting you. God bless, and I’ll see you soon.
